  All looks a little bare and new - because it is just 3 weeks old - but at least the waters cleared now...

That looks brilliant. Don't suppose you have any sketches/plans of your pond showing the position of its different levels etc do you? Or did you just dig it as you went along?

Empty Sunflower Seeds?

I cut a head off one of my Mongolian Sunflowers to collect its seeds. But most of them were just empty husks. Have a tried too early or am I just unlucky?

Try and keep any new path below the level of the lawm, to make mowing easier.

Sunflower Seeds Coming True?

Thanks. I guess to be sure I will end up saving some, and buying another packet next year. Then I will be stuck with hundreds of them!!

 

Sunflower Seeds Coming True?

Would the seeds from my Mongolian Giant Sunflowers come true if I saved them and sowed them next year? Or would they just revert to another variety?

Im really impressed with them, they are currently 3m (10ft) tall and should be flowering very soon. They are the tall ones in the far left corner of this photo...
